Privileged access management (PAM) is an essential aspect of cybersecurity. PAM refers to the practice of controlling and monitoring privileged access to sensitive information and systems, thereby reducing the risk of data breaches and unauthorized access. However, PAM is often misunderstood and compared with PIM and LAPS. In this presentation, we will discuss what PAM is, its role in your security posture, and dispel some of the fog surrounding it. You should come away with a better understanding of PAM and its role in improving your security posture.
